It isn't easy to catch Bon Appetit's eye, mostly because magazines don't have organs that detect light and convert it into electrochemical impulses in neurons. Buuuuut, local butchers Salt & Time managed to do it anyway with their coffee-rubbed lomo, a piece of press that helped buoy them from farmer's market stand to this brick and mortar, where they're peddling everything from genre-pushing signature creations like Pecan Porter-brined bacon to fresh-baked bread and Cuvee coffee

A butcher and bake shop, Salt & Time slices up local and sustainable meats from farms around Austin and Central Texas. On Sundays, they offer a brunch comprised of Tex-Mex (Migas, empanadas) and Southern (biscuits and gravy, pork hash) plates. Each day, it offers a Butcher’s Cut menu with eight to 10 high-quality offerings -- including Angus and wagyu -- cooked to medium-rare heaven in addition to the meat-focused daily menu. If you’re ready to master your home steak game, Salt & Time’s butcher shop has fresh (or aged!), gorgeous steaks ready to be wrapped and weighed. Get your drink on with a Cuvee Coffee pop-up also set up inside the shop and a wide offering of domestic craft brews on tap.
